Produced by Roman Kroitor and Graeme Ferguson of Imax Corporation for the U.S. Pavilion, Expo '74, Spokane
Man Belongs to Earth
Originally an IMAX film shown at Expo '74, the Spokane World's Fair.
'The quote, "The Earth does not belong to Man, Man belongs to the Earth" (attributed to Chief Seattle) was written in large letters on the outside wall. Inside the pavilion, visitors watched Man Belongs to the Earth—a 23-minute IMAX film made for Expo by Paramount. Scenes of U.S. splendor led into environmental problems including air pollution in Denver. The film was so realistic—especially during a sequence flying through the Grand Canyon—that motion sickness bags had to be made available.'
